Title: Filmspotter Confessions
Post by: smirnoff on September 26, 2009, 04:01:28 PM
When I go to the grocery store to buy milk I always grab the one that's gunna expire in 3 weeks over the one that is gunna expire in 1 week, even though I know I'll drink it all in a couple days.

Shameful, but there it is.

If I find milk in the dumpster, I will take it home and give it to my kids.  After I check it first.

And the other confession you need to explain is how often do you go scrounging through dumpsters looking for milk?

I go scrounging through dumpsters about once a week.  Or so.  Depending on if there's a particularly good looking dumpster or not.  And I have my regular dumpsters...

My partner is a militant recycler.  I recycle most of the time at home, but sometimes when I'm in a hurry (and she's not around to catch me)....I throw something recyclable away.

Reduce the landfill in whatever way you can!  I'm not militant, either-- I won't tear apart a plastic/paper item to put each in their respective piles.  I'll just throw the thing away.  But perfectly good items in the trash-- I'm there!

At least you throw it away in a proper trash container, which is more than can be said for some members of the human race.

Curb - You haven't seen the greatness that is Krazee-Eyez Killa in whole?  Oh my, Curb is one of the great pleasures in life.

Mad Men - A tad overrated, but definitely the best American tv drama since The Wire.

Breaking - A tad overrated, but very, very, very good.

I'm going to have to cop to 4 out of 5 of these (Battlestar saves me again). Luckily I can hold in my back pocket that I was too busy watching The Wire and 30 Rock to watch these shows. Nobody can get angry at me for that. Nobody.

I won't get angry but I will tell you that Curb is about a million, maybe a billion, times better than 30 Rock, and I really like 30 Rock.

I'll add Heros, 24, 30 Rock, The Office, American Dad, The Sopranos, and Desperate Housewives to my list.  Just not that much of a TV watcher....

In fact, it which be much easier to list what I do watch: Lost, Jeopardy, the occasional How I Met Your Mother, Seinfeld reruns and when the time affords itself: any channel showing 22 guys and a little oblong ball.

In fourth grade I mapped out a fictional continent on a far off planet using the pages of a ratty old notebook as an atlas.  Years later (the first day I owned a scanner) - I proudly loaded up all these graphics and have been playing with this maps in photoshop ever since.

Currently I'm working out the climital effects on it's geologic details, historical social-political impacts on locations of the population centers, and the rules for exception areas in national parks to allow human access into wilderness areas.

I'm looking for a program that will help me add terrain graphics a-la Google Earth.  It would be a life long fruitition of a dream to finally see this world in 3-d.  I'm sure such a thing is available somewhere for the right price!

I really haven't put any thought into ecosystems - it gets just overwhelming.  I'm really a geography buff and love studying maps.  It's been great watching all the 3-d imagery come back from the moons of Saturn and what-not.  So any cool geo-features to incorporate!  :)

I had a great story for alll this as a teenager but the movies StarGate and Star Trek II completely ripped my ideas LOL :).  Scientists used a device to create an Earth-like planet and Earth's worst convicts where exiled to this Earth-like locale using these transporter things to make sure it was livable but it ended up becoming this survivor style social experiment.  I had the movie all mapped in my head and I was for sure going to be a movie director and set right to work on this of course!  But one by one I saw movies that used the same ideas and I eventually stopped thinking about it...got married...got a job..had kids...logged onto filmspotting.

I voted for a few movies I haven't watched yet, in some Filmspot categories, because I strongly suspect that, based on discussions here, that they will be contenders and I wanted them to advance so I would have time to watch them, rather than take a chance that my non-vote for them would leave them off and then I would regret it when I saw them later.

I will feel terrible if I'm the only person who did/does this....I don't plan to do it in the final version but I was panicking at running out of time for the nominations!

Yeah, but they also trashed Postal, which is completely stupid. If they nominated something like An Education, The Hangover, or other lesser films then the word accurate may be applicable, but in the current state it is the complete opposite that is true. In such a case they only continue to prove a lack of originality and desire to lump more unwarranted criticism on whatever is trendy to unnecessarily bash.

My initial review of Inglorious Basterds ended with an A-. In my semi-complete list of the films I've seen, which hasn't been updated in months, it sits at #3 for 2009.

I can only think about it in negative terms because of the massive amount of noise for it. I don't know why, but I basically feel like this is a movie I gave a D- to, when it's probably still in my top 10 for the year, if not top 5. I didn't vote for it at any stage in the Filmspots. And I don't know why it is. I just kept listening to people raving about this film and liked it less and less and less. Unfair backlash? Totally. But that's how it is.

He is the Co-comedy director here at UC and people ask him all the time why they don't bring Dane Cook here to do a show. People are dumb and don't realize that he costs like $150,000 at least.

The only material that was at all memorable was the penis-cashew joke, which I didn't really like but I at least appreciated for being something.

No, I mostly gave up on it.  I was getting to the point where it was feeling like all my movie watching was "assigned" one way or another and I need to cut back to keep it fun.  I really was ready for a break after the Filmspots, and I would like to do the FS 100 later this year, plus I really enjoy the monthly MDC stuff, plus I'm working on a big personal marathon (Best Pictures) and contemplating a second one (Don Siegel movies) plus I would like to watch a movie once in a while just for, you know, enjoyment.

So I had let this fall by the wayside with a vague thought of maybe putting a ballot together but answering here has more or less cemented my decision to sit this one out.  I'm just not that passionate about lists and rankings.

pix, uninterested was a poor choice of word. I've just become very disillusioned by just about ever poll/ranking/voting list on here. I vote and then get angry and then rant all over the place. I'm just going to stay away from anything of the sort. It'll keep me from getting annoyed, which in turn will keep you from getting annoyed by me. Consider my absense from it a gift, pix. It's all for you.

just ignore them. All you have to do is vote for those you liked.

for me, a realitve cinenoob, I like the collective lists.  I envision myself taking the Top 50 films and working through all the ones I haven't seen - and do so hope others do the same. 

But in general - it's just for fun!  Stuff like this are our Donky Kong high scores...it's only worth the value individuals put on it!

People take these things WAY too seriously. The point is it's fun to see what list gets produced and of course some films you like will not make while others you dont will. Who cares?

As someone who has a strong interest in a genre which is often frowned upon (unless it's a mediocre foreign horror movie) I know the occasional frustration all too well. Even when you rant I've never seen you lose your good manners. I can only talk for myself but I've never been annoyed by the score-hunting hamster. Just remember, when you're angry, when you're about to throw your hands in the air, when you think there's no point ... ask yourself one thing: What would Wiebe do?

yeah, i don't mind getting a general sense of negative of positive but i try to stay away from the kind of in depth reviews that the guys do if i've not seen something - spoilers, ways they may view certain scenes that i wouldn't - plus when i read reviews i want to have the same reference points in my head that the reviewer does so i can agree, disagree whatever.

To not eat for a week or so delivers no delierium.  Our body just eats up our reserves, which most of us Westerners have plenty of.  After a few days, most people don't even remain hungry.  But after a couple weeks, when you get hungry again, that's when the freaky stuff happens.  Take care, there can be such a thing as too much enlightenment.

True!  In my case I wasn't looking for enlightenment - I just acted on a random thought.  

Day 5.  Still food-free.  I can't say that I'm least bit hungry or delarious.  Drinking lots of water helps.  Might extend this longer.

I literally worked from 7:00 AM to 1:30 AM twice this week, and 14 hours each of the other two days.  This is not unusual (programmer!) but just mentioned this because this hasn't affected my food cravings, and vice versa.

Shameful, but there it is.

While rough hands may make me more manly, they make it difficult, if not painful, to do other activities that I do on a regularly, sometimes daily, basis.

I'm way more into it this year than ever before.

Mostly because I saw so few eligible films this year and of what I did see, Four Lions (also holdover from last year, Still Walking) is the only one I really feel could use my support (though TS3 & True Grit will be all over my ballot). There are certainly plenty I want to see, especially since I haven't gotten around to a lot of the films that will likely have a lot of noms (Social Network, Winter's Bone). I imagine once the ballot is out I'll watch more, but I don't really feel as compelled to try to see everything as in year's past.

The forum averages ~500 posts a day.
The average post is ~50 words.
The casual reading speed of a person is ~250 WPM.

50 words x 500 posts = 25,000 words / 250wpm = 100 minutes of content per day + page load times + scrolling around + replying to posts...

It's a big job reading everything.

I love America but I think the American flag is the ugliest looking thing on earth, it looks like a patched up old mattress, with the stripes and the blue thing in one corner with the stars, its just ugly as hell.  A flag should atleast have a vertical line of symmetry, and preferably a horizontal one too so nutcases can't hang it upside down.  I think the confederate version was a vast improvement, and the cuban flag is a much more successful variation on a similar design.  As a general rule, if a flag would look bad as a shirt, it would look bad as a flag.

Almost anything being modeling is going to look as good or bad as the model.  Many things can choke me up but these symbolic things never really do anything for me.  I have a hard time with other american's overseas that see a flag and start to feel something cause of it.

Also, I am not sure on the origin between them, but somebody copied somebody here.  the malaysian flag:

Here's my recipe for you:
Go to the Living Room Theaters and see Joueuse (if you like chess or are interested in hearing Kevin Kline speak French) and order the hummus. Then spend an hour or two at Powell's. If they have my favorite book, Moonraker's Bride by Madeline Brent, get it. You'll like it. Next order some drinking chocolate at Cacao--because you can (I'm so envious!). Then hit your comedy club.

Sometimes in Shop Rite and other grocery stores there are whole fish in the seafood department. They are pretty big, kind of just sitting on ice, and still have the skin and everything in tact. I like to poke the eyes when people are looking. Like, I'll pretend to be a connoisseur, and partially I am because seafood is my favorite kind of food, but I just hover over looking down at it. I'm judging that damn fish, by the cover, by the page, I'm pretending to formulate an opinion. And as its lifeless eyes stare back at me, we both know how it's going to end, the only way it truly can end. I give a haughty turn, and then I just poke the eye. Sometimes I let it feel around, touching that damn fish eye. I'll never buy one, I wouldn't know what to do with it, but I'll pretend to be Mr. Seafood Bourgeois just so I can feel its now defunct peeper.

Then you should take pride in the fact that our bombardment of their asses is what inspired the anthem. We helped!

But yeah, the Canadian national anthem is pretty crappy on many levels and the American one is beautiful.

There's a particularly difficult high note.

The best thing about American anthem is that it's based on a drinking song.

La Marseillaise is the best though.

Agreed, especially in this scene...

Casablanca La Marseillaise (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HM-E2H1ChJM#noexternalembed)

This scene always brings a tear to my eye. Can you imagine the emotion felt in theaters around the world when they first saw this?

I recently met somebody at a dinner party and the topics of films came up and she started talking about having watched Salo, The Isle, and a few other interesting ones that wouldn't be part of normal dinner talk.  As the discussion went on, she asked to borrow a few selecting things from me so I lent her Happiness, Kids and Bully which she seemed to have liked though couldn't follow too well without the Chinese subtitles.  Now I am quite taken with her but that has seriously damaged some other friendships at the moment

I try to be wary of what I post, because I've gotten a lot of flack in the past for posts I thought didn't mean much. Tone isn't conveyed well in the written word.

A lot of my posts I also question in terms of who I'm directing it to. If I think it will be beneficial to whoever I'm talking with, I post it. But I know some posts are going to be pointless and launch an entire argument that will do nothing but make everyone frustrated.

For a film I haven't seen what I care about is:
Who directed it?
Who are the stars?
What is the general premise?
Is it good?

But most reviews go into more detail about themes and stuff that I simply cannot gain much from without having seen the film. This is what irks me about people who don't use ratings for their films. If I haven't seen the film, they are making it way too difficult for me to get what I need out of the review, especially those whose reviewing style is such that you can't even tell if they liked it anyway. I can get what I need a lot more quickly from imdb and rottentomatoes combined with brief review shows like Kermode and At The Movies. This is one reason why I've essentially stopped listening to Filmspotting podcast.

Makes sense. There are few things I like to write less than reviews/critical essays, etc., so I don't share that concern.

And what would you suggest as a way of narrowing down from 1000 films that exist to 100 films I actually have time to watch? At some point it is going to come down to I should or I shouldn't or rather, I do or I don't.

Does it really matter? For you, especially. You're never going to find someone with whom your tastes line up so perfectly that a recommendation is going to mean much of anything. But delving into the details--why the critic came to the judgment he/she did, rather than just a simple statement of said judgment--gives context and perspective to the question of whether you should invest your time or not.

The brackets are tournaments of heartbreak and unparalleled fun. Participants (that could be you!) are assigned matchups, go watch experience the films, and then report back declaring a winner. The losing film is eliminated and the winning film advances. The US 90s  (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=3439.msg317651#msg317651) Bracket is over, but the 90s Far East and 80s US tournaments are active and always looking for partakers.

To request a matchup, post here  (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=4946.2220) for US 80s, and here  (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=4309.1100) for Far East 90s.

I am with you Sam. Just looking at the last two weeks, I have not seen many movies simply for lack of desire to sit down and watch them. I go through spells like that every now and again. Sometimes I just try to power through them and watch stuff anyway because I seem to always be involved in about three marathon type obligations at a time, and I want to maximize my dollar when it comes to the whole Netflix thing. This is probably a bad thing and I am probably a little harsher on certain films when I do this, but there it is. Also:


Then how will I know when to wish people happy birthday if I'm not friends with them on Facebook?

These are social traditions and markings that I need to make people think I'm a good person, smirnoff!  :P

I am so off and on in wishing Filmspotters, and even friends on Facebook, Happy Birthday. I am on the forum pretty much everyday, so I see when it is people's birthday's, but I almost feel like my wishes would either be lost in the crowd or feel ingenuine. But I also wrongly assume that everyone knows I love 'em and am always wishing them the best anyway.

Ok. Lately it's been a little testy round here. There's been more arguing and less discussing. I am a part of that problem. I've been looking for things to get angry at. I've been picking fights and not backing down. So here's my pledge to you, my internet friends. I'll stop being so damn argumentative. I'll return to being Junior 1.0. Reboot the system. You wanna hate on a trailer irrationally? HAVE AT IT! You wanna use a bunch of pictures to say nothing? PLEASE DO! I'll smile and walk on by. Or I'll drop a little joke. But you'll see no more arguing from me, because I hate it in myself. Unless you say that it's been a bad year for film. Then all bets are off.

I always go with the more the better. Mainly because they are from my blog first and foremost, so I often see how it looks space-wise there before I copy and paste it for here (where it always looks like I wrote a lot more).

I also seem to type out everything that comes to my head, which is why I'll often include info that doesn't really pertain to my actual thoughts on the film (such as thoughts on the directors, actors, behind-the-scenes, etc.).

All I could kept thinking about during 'A Separation' was how I never want to live if I ever get Alzheimer's Disease (for my sake and my family's sake) - a life without a mind is no life at all.
Ironic.

I wasn't thinking this exact thing, but something related.  A friend - a former student  - wrote to me this evening and told me the doctors think his mother has Huntington's disease (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001775/).  If she does (blood tests forthcoming), there's a 50% chance he (and his brother) has it.  If he does have it, that means he'll be dead in 20-25 years and at least 10 of those years will be spent in a growing physical and mental deterioration until, finally, 24 hour care will be needed. Depression and suicide are common among people with Huntington's, apparently.

My friend is an amazingly sharp, creative, self-aware, sensitive, and talented person, and the cards have been stacked against him his whole life (horrible, hellish stuff he's had to live through and still has to deal with).  If there's this, too . . . ? 

Feeling so burdened for him.  His email was straightforward and dry, but I know that's not how he's feeling.

Title: Re: Filmspotter Confessions
Post by: Lobby on March 20, 2012, 03:14:14 AM
@OAD: that disease is one of the cruelest I've ever heard of. My heart breaks whenever I hear about it and the case of your friend is no exception. I hope he'll turn out lucky this time. But I wish noone had to throw that dice.

@sbd_1970: you know... noone wants to end up senile, but at least - once you're in that condiciton, you're not the one who is sufferning. It's the relatives who do.  It's the road to get there that is painful (I see it with my grandmother who rapidly is developing this, while being aware of that itäs happening.) But when you've lost it all, well... you're not aware of it anymore. I've seen it happening with my father (in the terminal state of cancer he turned senile due to liver malfunciton which leads to poisoning of the brain). He was gaga. It was awful to watch of course but HE didn't suffer so much from it.

Because of my affection for the show Girls, I almost bought a cupcake when I was at the store today so I could eat it while in the bathtub, even though I don't like cupcakes.

Perhaps the more notable confession is that I don't like cupcakes.

I should make cupcheesecakes (cheesecupcakes?), because those would be awesome.

Listen - there are plenty of couples out there who would love a cheesecake of their own but can't make one, either because there is something wrong with their batter, their oven, or some other unfortunate circumstance.  Giving up your cheesecake to one of these couples is always an option and there is no shame to it.  Oftentimes it is the absolutely right thing to do.

After all, the worst that could happen is they eat it.

It takes real dedication and focus. Plus, the realization that you can never actually watch everything. This is why I love Icheckmovies. It reminds me of that and helps me to prioritize. I wish I had this many films under my belt 20 years ago. The down side is it turns me into a film snob by default because there are so hardly any popular classics left to discover.
Title: Re: Filmspotter Confessions
Post by: Bondo on May 15, 2012, 02:56:46 PM
New films come out every year...popular ones if not classic ones.

I'm envious of the lack of films many filmspotters watch because they have better things to do with their lives.

Having just made another "discovery" amid a classic film, it looks more and more that my favoritism of the 00s really is just having watched way more films in the 00s. I think I confused this for not liking classics because of the most acclaimed classics failed miserably for me. It's been a lot of second-tier classics that have stood out for me. I guess that's often the case with new films too.

Post by: MartinTeller on May 15, 2012, 03:19:15 PM
I'm glad to see you re-evaluating your stance on older movies.

I feel like I'm discovering fewer and fewer "masterpieces".  In the past year, I've only given four new viewings my highest rating: The Turin Horse and The Tree of Life which were both pretty much expected, Secrets & Lies which I already had a good feeling about, and the one true surprise, Thirst for Love.  This could be any combination of these three factors:

1) I'm getting stingier with my "masterpiece" rating
2) I'm not looking in the right places
3) I've already seen everything I'm likely to love

I hope/believe it's mostly 1 and 2.  I think I've actually gotten more generous lately, looking for the good in most films, but I do hold back from that highest rating for movies that truly blow me away.

For general tracking/list making, I use Criticker.
Title: Re: Filmspotter Confessions
Post by: oldkid on May 15, 2012, 06:57:17 PM
Right now I use both Criticker and Icheckmovies.com

Criticker asks for a very specific rating, which I am not always prepared to give.  Icheckmovies is my "go to"-- I can always say that I have seen it and nothing else.  I go to Criticker when I'm ready to make a decision about a movie, especially if I'm ready to give a few lines about a film.

However, I've only used this system for a couple months, so I'm not sure how well it's going to work long term.
Title: Re: Filmspotter Confessions

As Martin pointed out to me (which I subsequently ignored anyway), if you rate things on imdb, you can import into both iCM and Criticker automatically.

I use iCM for my general track of what I've seen and Criticker mostly for considering filmographies of directors or actors.

omnipotent

I just had one of those "I've never encountered that word in written form before" moments. I read the word as omnee-potent, not omnipotent. After giving it a second pass and realized it wasn't a new word at all, I'm just dumb.(http://noffload.net/uploader/files/1/econs/redface.gif)

Then I said to myself "oh, omni-potent"... now i get why the word means what it means. I'd just said omnipotent all these years without considering that it's acutally made up of logical parts.

This weekend has been a real eye-opener.

Have you seen any of his stand-up?

Also, what do you mean by "relevant"? To your life? I'm not a middle-aged comedian raising kids in NYC, so I also don't find the show "relevant" to me on a base level. But I'm also not a New Jersey gangster, a science-teacher-cum-meth-dealer, nor the diminutive black sheep of a plotting and powerful royal family. Yet and still, I recognize a broader relevance in these series via the deeper truths buried within.

I like Louie (hit its peak in season 2 and even by the end it started straining its goodwill), and his stand up has some nice moments here and there, but on the whole I feel like he is notably overrated. I don't really like stand up though. But who knows, I still haven't watched Pootietang.

I said "not relevant" because I have read that people like his comedy because it speaks to the human condition, blah blah.  His sitcom is a rehash of the human condition maybe, but nothing is new.  He grabs an idea and wrings it dry but in a way that's not funny to me.  I could write those remarks/jokes.  He's comedy is very formulaic to me. 

My comments are based on the sitcom only.  I'll watch a stand-up segment before I completely write him off as a comic, but as of right now, I wouldn't pay money to see him.

My grandfather's name is James, so I'm named after him but called by my middle name. Most people call him Jim, so I could never see myself as a Jim. James Blake would be rad, but confusing since there's already 2 famous James Blakes out there.

Yes. It was something I picked back in the day more because I needed a handle and my favorite character from LotR was Sam, but I've grown liking the name more. Fun fact: my other grandfather's name was Sam and his son (my dad's brother) is also named Sam.

How come/when did it start? Never used "Jim" or anything?

Might FLY suggest going by James Blake?
My grandfather's name is James, so I'm named after him but called by my middle name. Most people call him Jim, so I could never see myself as a Jim. James Blake would be rad, but confusing since there's already 2 famous James Blakes out there.

Could be a third!

Just imagine a world 10 years from now where Google Glass-like technology is commonplace. It will undoubtedly have facial recognition technology built in... so when you approach someone on the street, even if you've never met them, you would know their name because it's tied to their face which is part of their public profile. The technology would even let you know how to pronounce it.

Technology will save us from awkward moments. :)

Speaking of human error, I felt that I still have much to learn in the way of tact. While I've learned relatively well for the past few weeks not to get upset at every little things other members say to me in the forum, I feel that I still need to work on better communication towards the opposite party. Being at the comfort of my home, in front of the computer, it can be easy to misinterpret what might be offensive to others and what might not. Being overly frank, for example, can seem rather insulting in hindsight (my remark about Ford and his paycheck).

So, apologies to anyone who might have found my attitude for the past few days to be tactless. I kinda just say a lot of stupid things I find to be either funny, honest, or harmless sometimes that I forget myself... I'll try to keep this in check. ;D Please be assured that I meant no offense whatsoever.

Mate, the advantage you have is a fair amount of self awareness. The disadvantage is that you have to watch that others aren't that bothered about being self aware and can take advantage of a perceived weakness. Make you feel bad if you admit a failing. So don't beat yourself up too much about it. Plenty of people make the same mistake over and over again which becomes its own form of comedy after a while. The self aware stop making the mistake.

Whatever you may have worked out about me I'm happy to keep expressing confidence in you; chiefly by continuing to talk to you. Given some difficult conversations I'm still here which is the best sort of confidence you can have in someone else ie you still want to talk to them. I get a lot back from the exchange. I learn from discussion. If it was merely an argument I would get nothing from it and I would stop bothering. Discussion is win win. Argument is dull. I'd only question the more internet type statements you've made. It's easy to be over emphatic to make a point on the Internet. It's not necessary. Not here anyway. But when it happens it's fairly clear what's going down.

Here's something to take as a general observation. A bit of people watching. There's a gap between the offence and the apology. The gap in time reduces until the apology comes before the offence instead of after it. In other words you stop yourself causing the offence so you don't need to apologise at all.

The other element is working out who has your best interest at heart and don't worry about the opinions of those who don't have your interests at heart.

I thought you deserved to get a reply from someone...so you'll have to settle for me.  ;D yet again though I get something from forming the thought on the page. I learn how to put the statement in better more polite ways. A learning process beyond the point people expect you to keep learning.

Honestly, that was just something I felt I needed to get off my chest, particularly when the lack of doing so might stifle my effort in building a good relationship with the community.

I think your ability to recognize that you've stepped over a line and your willingness to fess up to such a thing shows that you're on the right path. It took me like 25 years to be able to apologize to my mom when I was mean to her. It is a tough thing to do. Doing it, then, is one of the most important things you can do. And so you do it, and nobody will ever hate you for apologizing.

Sort of agree with this, but I hope that our keeping track of what's been seconded and thirded helps separate the wheat from the chaff. The real problem then is not that people FYC too much but actually don't FYC enough, in terms of seconding and thirding nominees.

But that process is what has Sunset Song, The Invitation, Mountains May Depart, Youth, Civil War, The Lobster, Love & Friendship, Macbeth, Zootopia, and Midnight Special in my queue.

I'm sure if you read a compelling write up about a film it wouldn't matter which year it was made.

Then it comes down to a personal definition of "compelling". I can say mine is something written with enthusiasm where that enthusiasm is explained well. The older the film the more writers tend to talk in terms of admiration not enthusiasm. It is impressive how a movie is robbed of sound and still tells a story. Admirable even.

Wouldn't Baudrillard say everything about the way we see the world is just a simulation of all the semiotics of this world?  :)  Or maybe I'm thinking of The Matrix.
Title: Re: Filmspotter Confessions
Post by: Sandy on April 12, 2017, 09:06:51 AM
Baudrillard's Simulacra and Simulation is in The Matrix! :D


When you wrote one dimensional, I'm finding that I like the concept. Everything stripped away to the core. No pretense. No identity that was put on you by something outside yourself. Yes, the cost of waking up. And, the reward. Hey! We are discussing Simulacra and Simulation after all!

"The simulacra that Baudrillard refers to are the significations and symbolism of culture and media that construct perceived reality, the acquired understanding by which our lives and shared existence is and are rendered legible; Baudrillard believed that society has become so saturated with these simulacra and our lives so saturated with the constructs of society that all meaning was being rendered meaningless by being infinitely mutable.[/b]"

  • Um...
    (http://i.imgur.com/uQ2mIuY.gif)

:)) exactly!

See! I told you! HEADACHE. :)

Indeed. Where did you ever come by Jean Baudrillard and his ideas? This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80osUvkFIzI#no) helped me get a grasp on it. It's an interesting way of framing things. Do you find there is a utility to looking at things in such a light?

Oh! I didn't come across Simulacra and Simulation. Neo showed it to me. It's his fault!

(http://i.imgur.com/rMSmBJml.jpg)

On the geekysnippets web page it says, "The superimposed digital reality is greatly influenced by the idea of hyper reality contoured in the book. A reality where object and people are unaware that they are not original, that they are copies of copies, that is the exact building block of the Matrix reality."

The video you found is very helpful! As for utility, the theory makes for a more critical eye, when it comes to taking in information. I'm already pretty skeptical when it comes to news media (I think you and I have talked about this somewhere. :) ), but looking at the idea of getting further and further away from reality in our society, it helps me to see why I'm so skeptical. News and political sound bites have become meaningless to me, white noise. To those who buy into all of it, I want to say,

"Wake up... the Matrix has you."

Did you find the ideas of the book useful to you?

It feels normal enough to shift in and out of thinking of things in a derivative sense... for instance, you can look at a telephone as a telephone or you look at it as it's components. Mostly it's various bits of plastic. And many plastics are derived from an ethylene/butene mix, and ethylene is derived from ethane, which is derived from natural gas, which is derived from what? Old burried organic matter? I don't really know, I'm just googling this stuff as I go.

The whole simulacra way of looking at things though isn't as derivative, but as, what? Representative? A lot more difficult to reverse engineer. But like you say, good practice for certain types of evaluation.

Nice job seeing that in the movie. I never noticed that or thought to look! It helps inform Neo's character. I'd be interested to see what else is on his bookshelf. :)

haha! I thought you knew those telephone components off the top of your head! I like your term, "representative." And yes, very hard to reverse engineer. I was trying to do that last night with one of my own realities and the best I could come up with is this: I've been cleaning out my filing cabinets and am amazed at all that I have kept. Why keep all of this? Everything was filed away because I thought it had value at the time and I had gotten in the habit of it pre-Google/Wiki days. But, it was more than that. Why did I need to have good information at my retrieval, even though the likelihood for needing it was very small? Who taught me to do this? My mom. She's a librarian. She did it for a living and copied her routine into her life and I copied it into mine. I'm not a librarian! I will no longer have a copy of a copy of reality. All of those papers go!  (That's the best I could do with simulacra reverse engineering. :) )

That's better than any example I can come up with. Honestly the philosophy is so nebulous I can't wrap my head around it. There appear to be rules, but I can't make them work for anything I throw at it. It's just too weird for me.

I like how the guy in the video you found, basically said, "Don't get hung up on it." :) Yes, nebulous and it turns in on itself, until it too loses meaning.

I didn't see the book initially, but had heard the term when looking up The Matrix a while ago. When I googled the term after the movie, there the book was!

It's surprising the machines allowed it to persist in their simulation of reality. :)

I hadn't thought of that! Maybe Trinity had it made and planted it somewhere for him to find. :)

Inception! Good thinking. 8)

I have no patience for proofing my posts before posting them, and yet I'll happily go back and edit them 47 times after they're posted to make all the corrections.

But doesnt the 'was edited' mark make you feel like an idiot?
I'm pretty sure I've deleted and reposted comments because of that.

Oh totally. I hate that thing.

It's always a race to get the edits in before that shows up. I don't know for sure but I believe it only appears after someone has viewed the post.... until then you can edit it as many times as you want and not have it appear.

I usually only edit my posts after pixote makes fun of me about my mistake.   Even then, sometimes I leave it because that makes the joke.

However, I have occasionally found myself editing Facebook posts 10 times.

Twitter needs to allow editing. Every damn time someone actually reads it there's an error.

I'm getting tired.

My ambition, my appetite for film remains large. I have two Marathons I want to do after my Horror one is complete. One small and one so large it will encompass over 1000 films. However, my passion is starting to cool. I'm not as interested in writing about film, though film discussion, which almost exclusively takes place for me here, remains the highlight of my days.

I usually get that way when my personal life gets overwhelming. This whole beginning of the year has been rough so I haven't done nearly as much movie-watching and writing as I wanted to do.

All this time I thought Jordan Peele was the tall one and I've been attributing Get Out to Keegan-Michael Key.

Well, I also couldn't tell you which one is Simon and which one is Garfunkel, so I think it's just me mixing up popular duos.

I have a lot of pity for the person who couldn't tell both Simon & Garfunkel and Hall & Oates apart who got excited when they saw the name Garfunkel & Oates, thinking they'd now be able to deduce who was who.

I assumed he was the tall one for some reason. If anything, I am a heightist.

Someone asked me today have many other Blade Runner films there have been before this new one, and my answer was not, "Two thousand forty-eight, I assume."
